No matter what time of year I would go, there would be some kind of heating and cooling problem
I decided that since some of the travel bans have ended, I am going to book myself a stay at a resort. I just want to get away from the humdrum life and get a little pampering. I am dreaming of cool drinks with umbrellas, swimming pools, maid service and free heating and cooling. I found what I thought was the perfect place to get all this at a reasonable cost south of the border. That is, until I found out that this resort calls itself eco-friendly and advertises ecologically friendly vacations. When I asked about it, I discovered that means there is no heating and cooling to speak of. That’s right – no air conditioning! Can you imagine? I don’t even know how they can call themselves a resort when they don’t offer a/c to their guests. The thermostats read close to triple digits during the summer, and they expect people to have a vacation without air conditioners? Even prisons have heating and cooling! I started thinking maybe I should just go in the winter, but then I realized that would mean there would be no heater in the pool. It just doesn’t make sense to me. No matter what time of year I would go, there would be some kind of heating and cooling problem. Even though the website looks gorgeous, and I do care about the environment, an eco-friendly vacation is just not for me. I think I better start looking for a resort that offers a true resort experience, which must include HVAC for comfort and good indoor air quality.
